Astrology and other cool things!

What better way to start a Monday then to tell you about some hobbies that I do. That I can’t actually believe that I have never told you all about!

Now I know the title says Astrology. I am not an actual Astrologer so I can’t not tell you your future/horoscope. However, I am a big follower of it. Now also when I say a big follower of it, I don’t really pay attention to the day to to day. When I was younger my Gran made a chart with different houses and those sorts of ones I pay attention too. Mainly because they’ve been extremely accurate.

My Gran also taught me Reiki and I am a Level Reiki Practitioner (and my bear Tristan). For those who do not what Reiki is, I’ll give you a little quick break down: Reiki is the ancient Chinese healing method with your hands. The great thing about Reiki is that you can do what is called “Absent Healings”. Which is where you give a picture or have a picture in your mind of the person your healing and you use a proxy (hence the teddy bear). I don’t use Reiki so much on other people anymore, but I do on myself at lot at the moment. It really does help. I must stress that it will not necessarily cure anything, but it helps with the stress of the situation. I once was regularly giving Reiki healing for someone who had terminal cancer. Although it did not cure the cancer, she said that it helped her with the pain.

If you ever feel like you need an absent reiki healing, please don’t hesitate to contact me!

My Grandmother also taught me the ways of the Tarot and I do love using my cards. I currently have a Lord of the Rings deck and I’ve had them for years! I love just using them to help clarify any questions or situations that I find myself currently in. Unfortunately though I don’t know why, but I can’t find my deck!

 

Unfollowing?

When you’ve ever unfollowed someone…Have you ever told that person why you’ve unfollowed them?

This is definitely one of my more random thoughts of the year.

I recently unfollowed someone mainly because I didn’t really like how they call themselves a full time streamer and people give them hundreds of their dollars. Too help pay with their rent, or to help pay for a new microphone, something like that. Yet, I swear they are least full time streamer, of the all the full time streamers I have ever seen. I wanted to write a comment along the lines of maybe they should reconsider the whole “full time” thing. They go on about having headaches, yet they spent the whole day doing stuff? I don’t think this person I unfollowed actually has had a single week yet all year, where they’ve streamed all the days that they said they were going too. There’s always at least one day a week where they don’t.

I felt like saying something, but I know that his followers would probably just eat me alive for every daring to say it. Even though they give hundreds of dollars to this guy.

The only times I’ve been told why someone is unfollowing me was to call me a horrible person. No one else ever had, even though they’ve clearly had problems with me. One, I found out though, thought I was too “boring” Guy is still single and I didn’t even know that he had unfriended me, because I found him “that” interesting *shrugs* Personally I think it was because he thought someone “better” had come along. Though she was not interested in him.

Have you ever gone about telling someone why you’ve unfollowed them, or have most of the time, they’ve just known why? I probably go through once a year and get rid of people who haven’t been around for over a year and I don’t know them that well…I get that.

Some days

Some days, I don’t want to fight with anyone anymore,

Some days, I just want to relax and ignore the whole world,

Some days, I want the solution to be easy.

Some days, I’d do nearly anything to win the lotto … (nearly anything…nearly)

 Some days, I could honestly sleep all day and still feel tired.

Some days, I couldn’t fall asleep even if I tried.

Some day, I can’t believe I was so unhappy the day before.

Those days are days where I try to do everything.

Some days, I just want to do everything but I become tired again,

Some days, all I want to do is read, but can’t =/

Some nights, I just want to read all night!

No joke, we went from 104 (F) weather (40 c) to Winter the very next day…Been a bit of a shock to the system.

  • Try on jackets and coats, get rid of ones that I haven’t worn in either years or ever.
  • Look into making my own candles and getting my own quotes on jars. (I was initially inspired by this after thinking about putting Magical Monday on a candle jar for myself. Then I thought why not look more into this?)
  • Try to create candles with certain fragrances as well…Try to research into what a “motivating” fragrance might be, for example.
  • Finish up writing the review for “Lord of Shadows”.
  • Look into healthy Winter recipes.

 

Where does the blame lie?

This is something that I’ve noticed in the last couple of years, and I don’t know if it’s just me or is it something that you have all noticed too?

I’ve started to noticed a thing these days instead of people taking any responsibility when they blame someone, they then turn around and say “Oh, but I’m not blaming them/you”

YES THEY ARE!

I’ll use a couple of examples that I’ve seen or seen others use against me personally.

Last week I talked about how women are STILL the main culprits when it comes to attacking other women when they come out about assault (See the blog here). One of the main things that they kept saying was “I’m not blaming her…but…(or then goes on about how she should have left)” Yes you are blaming the victim! That is blaming someone!

Myself personally, one of the life long friends that I’ve recently banished for life. A couple of years ago when I was trying to tell her to leave her abusive boyfriend. Her whole excuse for why we didn’t hear about the “good things” he had done. The whole reason was because when she is single, she was really jealous about hearing how happy we were in relationships…I was the only single one at the time…I have been single more than I’ve been in relationships…I have NEVER EVER been jealous of my friends being happy…In fact I have been the complete opposite for my friends…Especially when they’re actually being treated been well…When I pointed out this too her…Not the fact that I am nothing like this, nothing about the fact that his abuse SHOULD outweigh the good. Of course my response was but you are blaming me, for your way of thinking……She just kept saying “I’m not blaming you, I’m just saying that’s how I think”….Which you’d think my so called “best friend” of half my life should know me better than that…and it is still blaming me.

Hence why we will no longer been friends after she blamed me of treating her like dirt the last couple of years…She’s still with the boyfriend by the way…Abuse 101!

Anyway…What is up with this trend lately? How about you just say what you mean. If you don’t mean it, don’t say it.

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is my problem with people who have a problem with people who “take the knee”…See my problem?

Problem

In case you don’t have a single social media account, which is entirely possible. You may or may not have missed the whole #taketheknee who-ha. If you did, here’s a bit of a break down:

There is an American Colin Kapernick football player, who takes the knee in a peaceful protest against the very obvious racism in American, nothing at all to do with military…That is until Donald Trump, a war dodger said that anyone who takes the knee should be arrested. Without speaking to a single person who does take the knee, he just decided it was against the military….The guy who dodged the war and has never spent a day fighting in his life, is suddenly an expert in War. Suddenly people had a problem, when just the weekend before when Kapernick did the EXACT same thing and I doubt any of these people even noticed.

Then all hell broke loose. people started using pictures of dead soldiers coffin…you know soilders who can’t speak for themselves, which is so respectful of course *insert sarcasm here*…The biggest irony I found that a lot of Vets supported Kapernick. A lot of them actually said…with their own words and mouths…They fought so that people could peacefully protest, Kapernick has never ONCE said anything against the military. They fought against their people to have the FREEDOM to not be under a Dictator. Yet, people are completely ignoring this!

This is where my ultimate problem comes in…

These exact same people who have a problem with Kapernick…Have NO problem with the white supremacist group. That only a couple of weeks beforehand had worn the swastika symbols on their the tops…The people are “fine people” and they have no problems with those people. These “fine people” wore a symbol that millions of people fought and died to get rid of. In Germany it is ILLEGAL to advertise that symbol. Where’s the outrage for the soldiers who died under that symbol, where are the pictures of the dead soldiers who actually fought the Nazis, the pictures of the people who died in the concentration camps. Where are the pictures of the concentration camps of people who died because of that symbol? Where is the outrage against the people who wore symbols that soldiers actually fought against, the whole reason that Kapernick can peacefully protest against the more than obvious racism problem in America.

These people NEED to ask themselves why it’s alright to turn their backs on people who are just wanting their fellow countrymen to be safe…But yet don’t make a single noise about the white supremacist who wore a symbol that is ILLEGAL in Germany, who the allies actually fought against.

You are free to turn your backs on the NRL players, just as we are free to call you out on it. Being Free doesn’t mean you are free ONLY if everyone agrees with you?

In a shot of complete coincidence, I was watching “Band of Brothers” probably the most depressingly awesome series ever. Not just on War, but just an incredible series. There is one episode, I’ve seen it about 15 times “This is why we fight” I know it’s coming, yet, I can’t stop the tears. I can never watch with other people, it’s devastating. As I watched that episode again today, I found this article as well. If you can’t understand why you should be outraged by those “fine people” after watching that episode and reading this article…I am just going to assume that you have no heart.

Band of Brothers: how it’s episode was also it’s most devastating. 

 

I want to say that I’m shocked, but I’m not

You’ve probably seen the “metoo” hashtags all over the social media and although it’s heartbreaking to see just SO many. I am glad that we are now seriously talking about it…FINALLY!

However with the Hashtag it has also meant that other people are talking about their own situations, even if they are years and years old. Which has lead a lot too “I don’t believe you” and “why didn’t they said something before”…You know attacking these women, they attack first and then they say “Why didn’t you say something earlier” -.-

What has angered me the most is that women are attacking other women. You take a look at Michele Mahone…Years ago she felt harassed by Patrick Swayze and when she went to her bosses to talk them about it…She was sacked…Now she’s reliving it because of everything that’s coming out. Now the main people who are attacking her are women…again…Then Jacinda Adern became Prime Minister of New Zealand and most of the women who were attacking her, were attacking her looks, not her policies. I wonder if they even know what her policies are? Then there’s the whole Melania Trump and Michelle Obama thing.

What are these women’s mental malfunction? When you point it out too them, that one of the first things our parents teach us is about not to judge someone by their looks.

I can’t believe I have to use this:
